Hi, I am Mengyuan


I’m a product designer who thrives in fast-paced and collaborative environments where I touch the entire process end to end. I believe design is about solving problems with creativity, collaboration and craft. Being nice to people around me is also one of my important values.

Currently I am a hybrid pm/design lead for virtual event startup Run The World. Before that, I have launched 0-to-1 product in the wellness space for smart display at Google, designed online learning experience for students and enterprise at Udacity, and created social gaming experiences across PC, mobile and TV at Microsoft Xbox.
